If you’re throwing a Halloween party, you’ll want to serve a range of Instagram-worthy foods that will somehow delight and disgust your guests at the same time. For those who need a little inspiration, Google is here to help you! The website is revealing the most Googled Halloween food and drink recipes based on searches on the site. There’s so many fun things you can do for your Halloween party.

Select a theme for your Halloween party, such as a classic haunted house, a specific horror movie, a masquerade ball, or a more family-friendly theme like “Spooky Creatures” or “Halloween Carnival.” Create a spooky atmosphere with decorations like cobwebs, pumpkins, skeletons, and bats. Consider using black and orange as your primary color scheme. Don’t forget to add some eerie lighting for an extra touch of spookiness.  Host a costume contest with categories like “Best Costume,” “Scariest Costume,” and “Most Creative Costume.” Offer prizes for the winners.

Create a Halloween playlist with spooky and fun tunes to set the mood. Classics like “Monster Mash,” “Thriller,” and “Ghostbusters” are great additions. For an adult party, you can set up an outdoor or indoor movie screening area and host a horror movie marathon. Don’t forget the popcorn and blankets for a cozy and spooky experience.

You can even set up a photo booth with Halloween props and backdrops. It’s a great way for guests to take memorable pictures and remember the event.
